This is an easy to moderate hike, high enough to be reasonably cool and low enough to avoid leeches. We will meet at the arboretum at 08:15 for an 08:30 start (just in case it rains earlier). Then travel by songtaw to the temple parking lot, both up and back. Lunch will be at one of the restaurants across from the palace, which always have a good selection of delicious food. We should be back at the arboretum before 1pm.
